Default Brake Lines

While sitting here at work (away from the F-Type) my son called me inquiring about upgrading his WRX brake lines to stainless steel. He asked me if the Jag has stainless lines, and I honestly don't know... Do they? If not, are they easily up-gradable like most other cars?

Really an unnecessary modification on modern cars. They don't provide any real benefits.

I would beg to differ on "no real benefits". But everyone's definition might be different. I have installed stainless lines on all my cars in the past. They always provide a firmer pedal feel to me hence making that a "benefit" to me in my book. The idea being they don't "balloon" up in areas whereas the stainless braid would not allow that to happen....but that typically is in "high heat" situations which probably wont happen on the street everyday, only track use. So to each his own. I would like to hear a discussion from a "professional" though!

As an automotive engineer i can tell you that modern brake lines do not balloon even under extreme braking conditions. You boil brake fluid before you have to worry about that now a days.
